When I am hosting a party, food selection is one of the biggest challenges, especially when I have a really diverse guest list. My mother for one only likes Eastern food and the younger generation usually prefers Western. As a good host, I always want to make sure that all my guests feel comfortable by finding at least some familiarity in one of the dishes, yet I want to be able to enjoy the party myself without slaving in the kitchen. So I need to come up with a plan. The most worrisome cuisine is the Eastern as most of the dishes were quite labour intensive. That’s why I’ve chosen this Coconut Ginger Chicken because it covers most of Asia and it can be done in a slow cooker. It can also be paired with any baguette, naan, pita or rice.
- To use the slow cooker, after you sear the chicken transfer them to the slow cooker and add everything else. Set it for 3-4 hours on low and 2-3 hours on high.
